The assurances were to keep Russia out of the game, as it were.
When the Cabal was making its play in Iraq and Afghanistan, you had to keep the Russians out of the game. So how do you do that? Since Russia is perennially broke -- no matter what they say about budgetary surpluses -- they are nonetheless a beaten down 3rd world nation-state with commodities. They are no different than Brazil. After all Russia is one of the so-called BRIC nation states, i.e., Brazil-Russia-India-China, all beaten down 3rd world nation-states with commodities. Russia isn't any different.
The only remaining interest that Russia has in the Middle East and the reason it still does business with Iran is because it's owed so much money.
The Obama Regime is attempting to unwind Bushonian "excesses" in the Middle East since they've unwound Iraq effectively as they are unwinding Afghanistan, so they're not looking for any new "commitments."
So what about the US drone attacks throughout the world? None of it is escalation. We're hearing more about it now in right wing outlets, particularly on Fox News -- especially when it hits a bus of Iranian nuns... But these news outlets were the same ones that supported the drones when there was a Bushonian Regime in power.
